Well I have to say who Veronica picked was a nice touch although she may be wise to not try the same purse trick twice... Good to see the tag division hotting up as The Graverobbers have not only the Chromatic Dragons after them but also the Shadowrunners - and I expect THAT to get even crazier.

GET READY FOR RINGSIDE -
Very good
show intro.

THE WILD, WILD, AND WEIRD - ‘ROLLS’ ROYCE RAMSEY just fits as third of Dirty Deeds - throw in the more and more active BEAUTIFUL BLONDES and that’s a solid group. I get what Billy was saying about seeing fans cheering (rather than disliking) PETER and LANE - who seem like a trashier Edge/Christian. A lot of potential here w/ the addition of ROLLS.

Good to see both the ORIGINAL SHOWSTOPPERS and THE SHADOWRUNNERS in action … there’s really a solid bunch of tag talent available. I clearly am an OSS fan (I did pull them off GG’s shelf) and Katz has done some great Dougie Mayfield/Shadowrunners material.

RISE - Jay-Jay (really hilarious work w/ Annie’s “real name” bit) is finally getting a piece of the comes around after trying to tear the Frontier into pieces and being a fucking dick. Is there a better heel image than JJ DeVille in a halo/neckbrace? I think not. As far as what happened, I’m intrigued. I want to know what’s going on here.

FALCON CREST - Blaine’s a truly different character than what you normally see and I’ve always been a big fan. It’s nice that he’s rebounding off the losing streak and seems to be on-air more now. I’m keeping a close eye on him … think he’s due for a big year.

The bit w/ Shaniqua was good and it appears that we’re finally going to see the Blaine/Malik feud that has been festering for a long, long, long time now. I loved the Hollywood Wrecking Crew (the whole Dynasty, actually) and this is certainly a chapter that needs to be told in their story.


I’ll finish up later.

There seems like sooooo much to absorb for some of the stuff that I'm not familiar with. Let me see what I can sum up, as I'm still about 3-4 shows behind in feedback.

The Intro, and in general the banter between Drews, CALDWELLER, and Rice is all very well done. All three show enough personality that they're not robots 1, 2, and 3. Drews seems to be taken aback a bit by the randomness of the NFW, but then again, I can see why she would be.

I find sometimes that feuds get strung across many shows sometimes and it becomes hard to track them all. Example being the Langston/Dirty Deeds heat...after Reloaded came and went, I figured that the PW/XL beef was a simmering thing, but it was a huge focus of the Dirty Deeds spotlight. Maybe the Brawl/Reloaded stuff is supposed to be two different things? I don't know, but either way, it was cool to see reference to it.

We have a pretty solid tag division now. Graverobbers, Shadowrunners, Ill Fortune, The Dragons, some combo of Dirty Deeds, and even the losing-end teams like OSS all very unique teams in both in-ring style and personality. The Tag Division is vibrant, and could have a lot of future ahead.

The stuff with JJ makes me happy, because I didn't want to see JJ disappear out of sight. Like the JJ character, and although he's gotten a bit outrageous at times, he's a good add to the roster.

I take it that the Blaine/Anderson thing is something that has been simmering for a while, and if so, awesome that it's coming back around. Malik seems badass-enough.

TV Title match was a nice little match. There's so much interaction between guys regardless of alignment, and I love that.

Solid show, not as good as 68/69, but this is coming up on a major show point so there's no problem with a "light" show.

Blaine Hollywood and Malik Anderson were tagteam champs forever as the HOLLYWOOD WRECKING CREW, managed by Calvin Carlton, and they broke up, splintering their faction, which included Dorchester and Bandit.

They are all scattered across the winds as thus:

- Blaine went on a horrible losing streak, getting bounced out of the Ultratitle in the first round by losing to ZERO, which won't end the potshots by the announce team.

- Malik defended Shaniqua Carlton's honor and joined her agency, and befriended lone wolf Jack Bryant. Bryant has since parted ways with DDI INC.

- Dorchester Stratton was once DC Stratton, face and mortal enemy of the Hollywood Wrecking Crew, but turned heel and changed his whole identity which is a huge part of the tension he has with Blaine and Malik, because they were such heated enemies, but were in a mutual arrangement as stablemates, built on a house of cards.

People have been clamoring for Blaine and Malik to go at it for years. We'll see what happens.

THANK YOU for pointing this out. I had no idea why in God's name Legion was screaming "I WANT DC!" during the TV Title match, but now I know.

If you go search out the Hollywood Wrecking Crew/Suicude Kingz feud in the archives, it may be sine if the best stuff ever written. You'll fall in love with all off the characters seeing where they are now - especially Malik with his fear of heights.

And to add to the backstory of a few other people involved with all of this --

DC Stratton's tag partner in The Suicide Kingz was Tsunami, later renamed Akita Hoshi. Tsunami is one of my oldest characters. He was briefly the CSWA Unified Champion in 1995 or so, which at the time was THE title in our world of e-fedding. He came in as a young Japanese high-flyer who was nicknamed "The Posterboy of Hardcore Wrestling." I was a giant ECW mark at the time and he was like a Jushin Liger/Sabu mash-up. His most legendary match was against Mike Randalls, who Katz handles. Randalls is one of the most iconic characters in FW history. Tsunami and Randalls had a match that was a ***** classic that we still play-off today. After that match, Tsunami and Randalls formed a lengthy on-again/off-again partnership of sorts. They also tagged very recently here in NFW.

After his singles run lost momentum, Tsunami tagged with WildStar. WildStar was a longtime CSWA character who I picked up out of free agency. WildStar was the protege of Hornet (who was the biggest character all the way back then) before they went separate ways. WildStar was floating around for a while before I partnered them up. Their first name was The Suicide Squad. They had a few names after that, eventually best becoming known as Dawn of A New Day.

He was a RVD clone for a while (Wild *5* Star, complete with The Five Star Hand Gesture) before I aged him into being more like Mr. Perfect/Dean Malenko (but he was still mostly written as RVD, to my chagrin). He also went from being a cocky technical wizard into becoming a man who likes all things critically acclaimed. He's a vinyl record collector who loves power-pop such as Big Star, The Replacements and uses an R.E.M. song ("I Am Superman") as his ring music.

WildStar was in the original NFW roster as a face. He eventually decided to take on a manager, who was then NFW-ring announcer/pushover Calvin Carlton. Calvin revealed he came from money and became WildStar's "portfolio manager." Calvin eventually turned on him before taking on The Original ShowStoppers as his charges. And then he dumped The OSS to manage The Hollywood Wrecking Crew of Blaine Hollywood and Malik Anderson.

I backburnered WildStar for a while. He became an announcer and also a trainer at his Five Star Gymnasium in Wilmington, Delaware. That was where DC Stratton went from backyard highflyer (think early Hardy Boyz) into an actual wrestler. When training with WildStar, he partnered up with Tsunami -- his favorite wrestler growing up. He also met Rayne, WildStar's neice and the former loveslave of former NFW champion Michael Manson, who despite her goth/alternative appearance proved herself a capable manager and businesswoman. DC and Rayne were a very public couple best known for falling in love at Qdoba Burritos.

DC and Tsunami's partnership became known as The Suicide Kingz, playing off of The Suicide Squad nickname. Their feud with The HWC is one of my favorite story arcs ever. DC and Tsunami JUST couldn't get passed The HWC despite a lot of tries, including once incident where Blaine delivered his "That's Entertainment" finisher to an already injured Rayne as DC could only watch after being assaulted. DC and Blaine then had a singles match where if Blaine won, The Suicide Kingz would no longer have a title shot. DC won but along the way broke his arm.

Tsunami looked like he was going to have to fight the HWC by himself but Rayne had hoodwinked Calvin in contract negotiations, allowing WildStar to take DC's place. Tsunami and WildStar beat The HWC in a ladder match (due to Malik's fear of heights) and renamed themselves New Day Rising, tying into their former Dawn Of A New Day nickname, history of changing names and Star's favorite Husker Du song.

However, getting passed over by his mentors got into DC's head. He grew more isolated from the team as well as Rayne. There was a HWC vs. NDR Ironman match as a rematch. The match was tied with just minutes to go when DC turned on WildStar, costing the NDR the match as giving the belts back to his arch-rivals.

The next card, DC and Rayne confronted each other in the ring as they had not talked. DC assaulted Rayne, prompting WildStar and Tsunami to run to her defense. They were then jumped by The HWC. At the end of the show on Calvin's yacht, Stratton explained his actions and renamed himself Dorchester Stratton and his new love interest, Veronica Abrams Rumsfeld, a former "Perfect 10" of Blaine's entourage who became Calvin's personal assistant and steered Stratton's transformation and membership in this new alliance, dubbed The Dynasty.

Dorchester's first match under his new name was against WildStar, who came to the defense of his niece. (Tsunami was written out with a major concussion.) It was a No DQ, pinfalls count anywhere match with another stipulation: If WildStar won, he and Tsunami would regain the tag titles. But if Dorchester won, WildStar would retire. Dorchester won, pinning WildStar in front of his wife, and then spitting in her face.

After that, Dorchester was setting up a feud with then NFW World Champion (and character on the verge of ultimate greatness) Joe The Plumber. In a Hollywood's On Fire segment, Dorchester threw lye in Joe's face, blinding him in the process. They then had a blindfold match for the title set-up. Dorchester used this as an opportunity to instead break the helpless JTP's ankle with a chair. This, however, cost him in the long-run. JTP's title was stripped from him, prompting a four-man tournament for the belt. Dorchester lost in a classic to Castor Stryfe. JTP hasn't been seen since. (Devin, his handler, got busy w/ real life stuff and has only checked back in periodically.)

Dorchester then got backburnered a bit because of The Windham Clan's attempted takeover of NFW. (I was handling about 8 characters at once.) But that angle climaxed with a Troy Windham vs. Mike Randalls match, settling a decades-long feud between two of the biggest characters in NFW history. In the build-up to that match, Dorchester teamed with Troy and turned on him, giving him a major concussion in the process. Troy still battled against Randalls. That match ended when Troy's protege JJ DeVille -- the biggest schemer in NFW, making his ultimate power-play -- turned on Troy, putting Randalls on top of him for the pin. Dorchester got involved with that and also brained Randalls with a kick, who we haven't seen since. This formed The Hellfire Club, which saw Dorchester and Blaine split from Calvin Carlton's lead, and recently disbanded.

Dorchester eventually beat Jack Bryant for the TV Title in a Best of 7 feud that ended in a Steel Cage I Quit match. Jack had been somewhat tagging with Malik Anderson (former member of The HFC) and managed by Shaniqua Carlton (estranged sister of Calvin Carlton). Shaniqua threw in the towel after Dorchester had gained the upper hand once and for all. Jack since parted ways, leaving Shaniqua at the wayside.

Dorchester then defended the title against Akita Hoshi, the former Tsunami, and his former tag partner. This was a match years in the making. This had a stipulation -- Akita's career versus Dorchester's title. This as a wild brawl that saw Dorchester escape with a victory, ending the career of his former tag partner/best friend/hero. But in the crowd watching was "The StarChild" Paul Reeves and "The Young Wolf" Michael Ogawa -- the sons of WildStar and Tsunami respectively, both recently signed to contracts in the UWA, the NFW's minor league. (StarChild's real first name of Paul is in tribute to Hornet, whose first name is Paul. And Ogawa's name of "The Young Wolf" and his first name are in homage to Tsunami's mentor, "The Wolf" Mike Randalls.)

And now Dorchester is once again at odds with Blaine AND Malik. And now Legion, the master of various headgames, wants to see a return to DC.

I just realized that this whole thing dates back to when I was 15 years old or so.

MALIK ANDERSON v. LONE WOLF - Malik is not a happy camper and poor ol' Lone Wolf takes a beating because of it. I know it's a squash, but it works for showing where Malik is at right now. Malik has had a great story (like a six/seven year one) and it's still coming around.

ILL FORTUNE v. CAN-AM STRIKEFORCE - You have to like (hate) Austin and L7 - fun characters and they're completely and totally obnoxious (see post-match promo). Adds another strong team to the EMT Division ... it's not BRAWLAPALOOZA deep, but it's really, really good right now.

STRATTON v. VERONICA RUMSFELD's CHOICE - Good choice and you have to love both of Dorchester's reactions - when he finds out who it is, then when he hears the stip. If this goes further, I really want to see what Legion pulls out of Dorchester ... he's bound to mindfuck him some. Dorchester wins by hook and crook - then all hell breaks loose.

Really like seeing Lamont being more involved w/ Blaine - good stuff.

The Black Market and the Shadowrunners w/ Dougie Mayfield would be so gold. There's a lot of personality there that'd be fun to see together.

Well done on the show, fellas.
